by hour. we will be discussing this new information later in this hour with john bolton a former u.s. ambassador to the united nations. >> heather: lights are coming on for some in new york city while others are learning it could be weeks before their power is restored. mayor mike bloomberg on the latest recovery efforts and help cannot come soon enough for those living in hard hit areas of staten island. david lee miller is standing by with the very latest. >> reporter: let's start with conflicting information. there are reports at this hour that authorities have stopped the free distribution of free gasoline, gasoline from the department of defense that had been delivered to various parts of new york city by using tanker trucks and first responders were eligible to get that gas. i can tell you that here on staten island there is such a tanker truck and gasoline is being distributed to the general public as well as a separate line for first responders. at least here in staten island, free gasoline is available to the general public. authorities say they have at least 36 hour suppl
support with almost $2 billion in foreign aid? ambassador john bolton was one of the very first to warn, be careful what you wish for when the arab spring drove morsi's predecessor, mubarak, from power. that guy was basically a dictator too but he was a pro-western dictator. now there is a question whether we have upgraded and whether the egyptian people have. we'll ask ambassador bolton what he thinks. >>> in washington we're hearing new concerns over the fate of the recently ramped up budget talks in washington and what they're talking about is your money and how much they're going to take. after a growing number of liberal democrats now say they would rather see a series of automatic tax hikes punish all americans rather than to agree to spending cuts or deals they don't like and they believe compromise their principles. this comes despite warnings from the congressional budget office that the tax hikes now about to take place could throw the economy back into recession. two million more americans could be left out of a job and most troubling of all according to the pentagon, the cou
to make about john bolton. democrats dug in their heels and a they were not going to consider the nomination until they would get basic answers to their concerns. the concerns i have far greater today there and they were before and we are not even close to getting a basic cancer. >> i have many more questions that need answering. >> that was about 10 minutes ago after meeting with u.n. ambassador susan rice, mentioned as a possible replacement for outgoing secretary of state, hillary clinton. coming up, more discussion on the so-called fiscal cliff this timeless and a majority with dick durbin at the center for american progress in washington. we will have that live. up until then, part of this morning's "washington journal." host: we want to welcome jack gerard, ceo of the american petroleum institute. let us go back to campaign 2012. the american patroleum institute spent about $858,000 on the campaign cycle. total contribution to pac's over $650,000. and contributions to candidates, $217,000. given that you spent a lot on mitt romney's bid, how you think this will impact yo
. former u.n. ambassador john bolton joins us. nice to see. could this have been prevented? >> absolutely. this is a reflection of the obama administration to take this issue seriously. it was demonstrated last october when the palestinian authority was made a member of the u.n. scientific and cultural organization, when it never should have been. palestine is not a state. that's a fact. when the u.n. engages in this kind of activity it shows a real lack of administration commitment to stop it from happening. >> greta: what does it mean as a practical purpose? >> it has a couple of practical implications. the first is the general assembly having decided that palestine is in a state, it's now in a position to go to every other u.n. specialized agency and get admission, which will trigger off a cutoff of u.n. funding, number one. number two, i think there will be a reaction in congress. senator orrin hatch has said he'll introduce legislation to cut off funding for the u.n. itself. finally the palestinians will try to accede to a number of treaties only open for states like the internationa
. the claim has not been verified. john bolton is here. good evening, sir. >> good evening. >> greta: first, your overall thought about what transpired on capitol hill, in terms of the release behind closed doors today? >> well, i think the most interesting testimony that has leaked out -- do i have faith the rest of it will leak out in due course, is that the director of national intelligence and the acting cia director would not say where the talking points that susan rice used on those famous five sunday shows came from. so the notion that somehow or another, this was all supplied to her by the intelligence community, i think is now in question. the real is did the white house write the talking points to suit their ideology, to suit their political imperatives, where did all of that come from? and that, i think, is going to be the focus of a lot of the inquiry with director petraeus tomorrow. >> greta: one of the things that is curious to me, and i am total oat outside, but having tried cases. have you to keep secret. some things on capitol hill have to be secret because it's classified.
on john bolton, his ambassador to the united nations? [laughter] >> right. discrimination against men with moustaches. [laughter] it is so absurd, and the president gets away with it, frankly, because we let him get away with it. there was ed henry of fox news, a couple other people trying to ask some hard questions, but he just swept them aside, and that format is death for getting to the bottom of an affair. that's why we really do need to know in detail, either a select committee or some other venue, what the administration has said about what happened in benghazi that night, whether or not they were attempting to mislead the american people about what happened to make their re-election more likely. i mean, these are questions that are not going to go away even though the administration would like them to go away. jon: yeah. because if susan rice wasn't connected at all to the benghazi incident, why did they put her on the sunday morning shows? >> right. that's an obvious question. [laughter] it's such an obvious question. and, look, i also don't understand why the media -- if i wa
things to do, and john bolton has suggested that, is to make u.n. dues, i'm sorry, u.n. dues voluntary. so we only pay for the things we want. if there's some health project they're involved with that's doing a good job fighting disease, fine, we can fund that. the human rights council, well, we don't want to fund that. if it's unesco can has accepted the palestinian state to enter as a nonparty member in which human rights council and both of these which are a forum for anti-americanism in which iran plays a major role, we don't want to fund that. so instead of being done 22%, we should move to a voluntary payment for the u.n. i mean, probably some of you may disagree. i don't think we should just say we're leaving, we're walking out. probably not a good political move. it's not necessary. we'll pay for the things we want to pay for. we'll move to a voluntary basis, and then it's not a problem having it as a talking shop, i don't think. and the security council there are some benefits, we do have -- as long as we have the veto in the security council, we have some influence there. we
: to be secretary of state. dana says the bolton payback theory may be part of the republican's reason for blocking her nomination. but a bigger part is that if john kerry's chosen instead they think scott brown will be able to fill his senate seat. dick says please point out that republicans have named as chairman of all of their committees that they're responsible for with all white men. no women or people of color. will they never learn? no they will never and have never learned anything! >> announcer: this is the "bill press show."
